Foundation Reuse for Foundation Bridges - Part I

COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Foundation Reuse for Foundation Bridges - Part I
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH interactive presentation provides a brief summary on all aspects of the decision process leading to the reuse of an existing bridge foundation.

Given the high percentage of deteriorated or obsolete bridges in the national bridge inventory, the reuse of bridge foundations may be a viable option that can present a significant cost savings in bridge replacement and rehabilitation efforts. The potential time savings associated with foundation reuse can, in turn, reduce mobility impacts and increase the economic viability and sustainability of a project.

However, existing foundations may have uncertain material properties, geometry, or details that impact the risks associated with reuse. Assessment of these issues as well as foundation strengthening and repair measures and innovative approaches to optimize loading are discussed in this presentation.

This 4 PDH online interactive presentation is applicable to engineers, city planners, and owner agencies who are interested in foundation design with consideration for reuse.
